3 - 2- 1 GO!!! The race is on!

The race of my tomatoes that is. :lol: Which will be the first. I have quite a few tom's out there. Though the weather has turned super hot we shall see what ripens first. I have about 12 variety's and a bunch of them have fruit but it has been a slow process. Here are some pics.

Basically there is one pic of each plant some had more fruit but only one pic was taken. The first two pics of my potted Black Cherry with the dog in the background was a double just cause the first pic didn't get her well. :lol:

Oh man, they all look outstanding.
My regular-size varieties only have a couple fruit so far. My cherry varieties have several fruits, though.
I had mine in the ground during that cold snap we had, and I think that might have slowed them a bit. Were yours in the ground then?
Also, which variety has the fruits with the purple hue? They're gorgeous.
Keep up the good work! You should definitely be proud of those!

Brian yes my tomatoes have been in the ground for quite a while. The cold wet weather did slow them down , even too some down. Now it is nothing but Hot Hot Hot. Should be an interesting year.

The blue ones are OSU blue.
